I love a ginger and peach combination in most any tea, but especially in this oolong that is peachy by nature. The ginger is flavorful, but not overdone, and I can steep twice. Also, because it has no added sugar to flavor it, there’s no cost to my daily intake of calories. I can drink with abandon. High quality tea without a high price tag, and the health benefits of an oolong tea. Thanks to such great options at Harney & Sons, I’m able to eliminate from my daily routine the “flavored” teas of other companies that are made so because of the dried fruit. I don’t really need that added sugar (even though fruit sugar is healthier than other kinds, yes), and I get all that I need in a tea from this oolong and the Pomegranate Oolong. Great deal all the way around! Wouldn't change a thing.
I love ginger. That is why I was deeply disappointed in this tea. I had this tea at a restaurant once and it had a strong taste of ginger. I can only assume that the recipe was different then or that the restaurant added something to it. Having had such a great experience before, when I finally decided to purchase it online, I couldn't wait to get it. After tasting the first cup, I looked into the mug with a perplexed look on my face. It was extremely bland to the point it tasted like a non-flavored oolong. I thought maybe I didn't get the right mix of leaves and ingredients so I mixed it up a little and made several more cups with the same result. Only once have I been able to taste even a hint of ginger. I contacted H&S with the lot number of my tin. They taste tested it and said everything is fine with that lot. If that is the case, I don't see how they can give this tea a name containing the word ginger. I have decided to give away what I have remaining.
I didn't taste the ginger at all.
